This MOOC was held in April & May of 2013. However, the modules can be used in a self-paced manner to deepen your understanding of NGSS.

UW Oshkosh is offering a free, open and flexible online MOOC to assist educators as they deepen their understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards.
The NGSS MOOC includes a series of video lectures, resources, tasks, and online “office hours.” The MOOC is self-directed and flexible to match your schedule. Although there is a scheduled “live” component, the MOOC can be completed at any time.
